Welcome back. We are on the board in 2020 with a solid 3-1 week. I have decided to give more picks rather than just a “lock of the week” or an “over of the week.” I know I wake up in the morning and instantly check the lines for the day. Which is weird, because I live in Ohio, a place that won’t allow me to place bets.
Gabe Botero | January 21st, 2020

With five minutes left in the fourth period, the Miami Heat were up by nine points. Then, the Brooklyn Nets took control the rest of the way with a 17-4 run to close the game. The Nets 2-3 zone made it tough for the Heat’s offense down the stretch. The loss puts the Heat’s season record to 27-11 for the season. They’re also 10-10 on the road.
Here are my takeaways from Friday’s loss to the Nets. Continue reading
Gabe Botero | December 10th, 2019
Nick and Gabe are back talking about a predicted firing in the Northeast, whether or not the Nets are better without Kyrie, and James Harden’s conspiracy covered “missed dunk”. Gabe hops on his new soapbox and complains about how LeBron “Bronny” Jr. has more televised games than half of the NBA and Nick breaks down the changes that Adam Silver wants to bring to the NBA. Plus: Scooby-Doo and Chris Paul in the same sentence? Listen to the episode to find out! Continue reading

For the first time in a month, the Miami Heat found themselves in a close game. Trailing by seven with under two minutes left, the Heat had to dig deep to leave Brooklyn with a win. And they did it by getting multiple stops on the defensive end. Miami now enters Monday with a 14-5 season record.
Here are my takeaways from Sunday’s 109-106 victory over the Brooklyn Nets.
Jacari McRae| November 30th, 2019
The last time the Miami Heat and Golden State Warriors faced off, the Heat beat the Warriors thanks to a Dwyane Wade buzzer-beating three-pointer. This time there were no late-game theatrics. After the Warriors trimmed the Heat’s lead to six in the third period, the Heat regrouped in the final period and ended the game with a 122-105 win. The victory moves the Heat season record to 13-5.
Here are my takeaways from Friday’s win.

It’s almost December and at this point, the NBA season has shown what teams came to play to start the season and those that didn’t. It’s no debate who some of the top teams are in the league right now and who needs to reevaluate their approach before it’s too late. Here’s where the teams that have gotten off to a marvelous start rank. Continue reading

The Brooklyn Nets have undoubtedly won Free Agency, they got Free Agency’s top prize in Small Forward Kevin Durant. They then went out and got the prized point guard of this free agency in Kyrie Irving. They then decided to bolster their big men by getting Center DeAndre Jordan from the Knicks. In this article, I will briefly go over what these moves mean for the future of the Brooklyn Nets.
Kit Shepard | June 30th, 2019
Wow. It happened. For the vast majority of the past year, it seemed a certainty that Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving would be joining the New York Knicks, but the Brooklyn Nets have swooped in from nowhere in what could become the most significant moment for the franchise since the NBA-ABA merger of 1976.
Alex Perl | June 30th, 2019

One of the most highly anticipated off-seasons in NBA history is in full force. Tonight at 6 p.m. on June 30th is the unofficial official start of NBA free agency. Some mighty large names will be available on the open market to sign for any organization they so desire. Below is a list of names that are free agents and teams who own the most cap space to go wrestling for a player that can join their respective squads.

The Brooklyn Nets‘ 2018-19 season was a demonstration of what can be achieved when team-mates simply like one another. Considered a long shot to make the playoffs last October, New York’s unfashionable franchise defied all expectations to make the playoffs, courtesy of strong chemistry, a never-say-die attitude and an egoless group of much-maligned misfits. Although they bowed out in the first round, they gave the heavily-favored Philadelphia 76ers a fright and with a band of young, united players, the Nets appear perfectly placed to develop further in the near future.

The playoffs are only just underway, but after a wild opening weekend, a few interesting statistics have emerged. With each team having played their first game of the postseason, what can be learned, or ignored, by the numbers from the eight exciting game ones?
Troy Pierce| April 13th, 2019
82 regular season games have come and gone, and playoff basketball is upon us!
Several rookies made a name for themselves this season, but of all the top rookies from this season, only three remain with playoff basketball at their fingertips. Rodin Kurucs (Brooklyn Nets), Landry Shamet (Philadelphia, traded to LAC), and Shia Gilgeous-Alexander (Los Angeles Clippers) will get the chance to suit up and take the floor this NBA postseason.
The regular season has ended, and the playoffs are finally among us, and there was a ton of drama up until the last game. There was lots of competition to get both into the playoffs and get seeding which made the season end incredibly fun to watch. There’s a lot to unpack about a couple of things that transpired during the season and the upcoming playoffs. To guide you in what to expect in the playoffs, a few of our wordsmiths have come together to talk about it. Without further ado, let’s get into it.

The Boston Celtics are coming off a horrendous 0-4 week. I believed they would go 3-1, but it definitely didn’t turn out that way. They collapsed against the Charlotte Hornets and it seems like they’re going through that mood swing cycle again as the season comes to an end.
Kit Shepard | February 21st, 2019
With temperatures getting warmer, days getting longer, and All-Star weekend behind us, attention can start to shift towards the Holy Grail of the NBA campaign. Whilst this year’s regular season has been wildly entertaining, and the upcoming free agency is set to be the most dramatic in recent memory, it is the time between mid-April and mid-June that will always be the most exciting period in the basketball calendar. To paraphrase the NBA’s favorite slogan, the postseason is ‘why we watch’.
Liam Romero | February 10th, 2019
The 2015 draft class has progressed to the point where the players have made their names in the league and NBA fans now know who’s relevant and who isn’t. Players like Karl-Anthony Towns, D’Angelo Russell, and Kristaps Porzingis define the 2015 NBA Draft Class and have solidified themselves in the league. One name that was thought to be a bust until this season is the third overall pick, Jahlil Okafor. The star big man came off a national championship team with Duke University in 2015.

The NBA trade deadline is just around the corner and the rumor machine is on fire. While most teams won’t make a deal, each will consider many options between now and the February 7th deadline. In a six-part series, I will provide one trade each NBA team should consider making between now and the deadline. The Atlantic division is up first and here is trade each team should make.
Eddie Bronsozian | January 28th, 2019
The Boston Celtics ended last week with a 2 – 1 record. They had a solid week even though they had one loss because it was against the Golden State Warriors who are the best team in the league. They played well against the Warriors but just came up short due to some sloppy turnovers.
Levon Satamian | January 26th, 2019
As the All-Star weekend approaches, I wanted to tell you which players deserve to be in the All-Star game who didn’t get the votes they should have. I will select one player from the Western Conference and one player from the Eastern Conference and want to hear who you guys think deserves an All-Star spot that is not getting the votes they should be getting.
Mike Fanelli | January 17th, 2019
Back from the dead, the Houston Rockets have won 14 of their last 18 games and are currently the fourth seed in the Western Conference mainly because James Harden is playing like a mad man. During the winning streak, Harden is averaging 40.6 points, 7.1 rebounds, 8.9 assists and 38.4 minutes per game while registering five 30 point triple-doubles. The Rockets have been killed by injuries recently and now rising star center Clint Capela is expected to miss 4-6 weeks with a thumb injury.
Levon Satamian | January 16th, 2019
D’Angelo Russell was drafted in 2015 by the Los Angeles Lakers as the 2nd overall pick in the draft. Russell came into the league with high hopes of being the next star point guard for the Lakers. He had the capability of being the next star point guard for the Lakers too, but his stint with the Lakers, unfortunately, didn’t last long.
Coach Treal | January 8th, 2019
Welcome Back, Hoop heads! We are already into January and the NBA season is getting into full swing, with playoff prospects for most teams is already beginning to take shape for better or worse. Some teams are still fighting the injury bug and others are just losing the fight. We take a deeper look into some of the must-see game this week. Stay Tuned!
Kit Shepard | January 19th, 2019
In August of last year, I spoke to Joe Harris of the Brooklyn Nets about his aspirations for both himself and his team ahead of the upcoming NBA season. The then 26-year-old was reluctant to reveal exactly how far he believed the team could go, but he assured me that they had “a lot of reasons to be optimistic”. Three weeks into 2019, with over half of the regular season complete, that could be a serious understatement.
Coach Treal | November 12th, 2018
Basketball fans! We are back with another preview of some of the must-see games of the week all in one place for you. We have had a huge trade happen over the weekend as you know as Jimmy Butler heads back to the Eastern Conference to the 76ers. Keep an eye out this week to see how the Timberwolves look now with all this behind them.
Kit Shepard | September 19th, 2018
The Brooklyn Nets do not have the reputation as the most patient organization in the NBA. In 2013, they gave up four first-round picks to the Boston Celtics for (among others) a 35-year-old Paul Pierce and a 37-year-old Kevin Garnett, in a desperate attempt to contend now. It was a disaster for Brooklyn. Garnett and Pierce had both left by 2015, leaving the franchise’s present looking bleak, and their future looking horrific.
